Abstract: 2019年的香港发生了规模宏大的民主示威运动——反对《逃犯条例》修订草案运动(简称“反送中”)。反送中不但举世瞩目,也受到香港文学界文化界的高度关注,韩丽珠在2020年出版著作《黑日》就是此中表表者。韩一向以小说反映香港地道小市民生活而闻名,这次却打破创作常规,以充满实感的日记体,紧贴反送中现场发展及事后经历,将2019年4月至11月的历史大事、社会原生模样及分裂,结合个人感怀,串成一篇完整公共与个人记事。 本论文以“残酷文学”与“日记体小说”两文类分析框架,分析《黑日》几大主题。一:以哲学观分析韩丽珠的“复仇”观。对韩而言,复仇不是以暴易暴,而是以希腊神话、宗教例子、文学典故,以更高层次文字记录方式揭露罪行、保留记忆与结集力量。二:以宗教观分析韩丽珠的“救赎”观,涉及赎罪、忏悔与包容。韩的写作对象,开宗明义是关注反送中的读者,探讨作者如何利用文学与媒体的力量批判政治及社会制度,目的是通过写作为香港发声及保存香港共同体的心声。 In 2019, a large-scale democratic demonstration took place in Hong Kong against the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill. Besides attracting international attention, the demonstration also garnered tremendous reaction from Hong Kong's literary scene. This is exemplified by Hon Lai Chu’s novel “Darkness under the Sun”, published in 2020. Hon is often recognised for her unique writing style that uses fiction to reflect the reality of Hong Kong society by focusing on the lives of the locals. This is the first time that she has made use of a diary format in Epistolary writing which was adopted from a witness’s perception of the 2019 Hong Kong Anti- Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement. This combination between the examination of the initial societal situation and division, results in a comprehensive public yet personal memoir. This thesis aims to analyse “Darkness Under the Sun” using two types of writing frameworks; ‘Atrocity Literature’ and ‘Epistolary Novel’. The theme of the novel would be discussed in two parts within this thesis: The first analyses Hon Lai Chu’s attitudes towards ‘revenge’ through a philosophical perspective. For Hon, revenge is not about counterviolence, but using Greek mythology, religious examples, and literary allusions to expose crimes, preserve memories and accumulate power . The second analyses Hon’s comprehension of ‘redemption’ from a religious standpoint. “Redemption” here refers to atonement, repentance and acceptance. Hon's target audience is readers who are concerned about the 2019 Hong Kong Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement. This would be followed by uncovering how the author uses the power of Literature and Media to criticise the socio-political system of Hong Kong.
